This is our second visit to this lovely restaurant and as before the food and wine also the beer were very good. I booked this in the UK before our trip to make sure we got in and asked for a window table for 4 and we got it. Thank you for a great meal and will see you next... More

Beautiful small cosy restaurant. We all had the tourist menu, which was good value, nicely presented good food. The soup was quite tasty (cauliflower) but a little watered down. The mains were good as was the desserts. You will need to book, although we were able to on the day.

It was the Bouillabaisse that attracted me and it didn't disappoint. If you are in Bruges you need to try this restaurant. Make sure you book as it does not seat many guests.

It's a beautiful small restaurant near the market. The food was great and so was the service! We were in Bruges during a heat wave and were also very thankful for the air conditioning.

Managed to get a last minute booking at this restaurant and it was lovely. The food was perfect and the service was more than we could have hoped for. The staff were professional, polite and accommodating. The restaurant is in a beautiful location and looks stunning in the evening as it is all lit up. A must visit when in... More

Totally beautiful ambience, gorgeous food and the service was so personal. We have been coming to Bruges for 14 years and always walked past thinking how lovely it looked but never stopped! Can't wait to go back again !!!

Reasonably priced, superb taste and well presented in a lovely atmosphere. Great location. We had the Flemish stew and 1/2roast chicken which were both superb. The homemade carrot soup was excellent as were the profiteroles. Can't rate this restaurant highly enough.

Gruuthuse Hof is a really special restaurant. A short 10 minute walk from the Market Square, and worth every step. The restaurant was booked our first night in Bruges, so we made a reservation for the next night. The restaurant is fairly small, so reservations necessary most of the time. The food was wonderful and the service superior. We were... More

We visited here on a Saturday evening after reading good reviews. The food was absolutely delicious and did not disappoint. They do a 'Tourist' offer whereby you can get chicken, steak or salmon along with a side of fries, the soup of the day for starter and a dessert for 18 euros. The dessert was a choice of ice cream...

We are in Bruges on honeymoon and this is the first restaurant we ate at. My wife simply liked the look of it as we passed by and thankfully there was a table for us as it's a very small place. Strangely, as we were taking of our coats, Al Green's Let's Stay Together came on the stereo...just three days... More
